Discover the Immateriality in Residue

Text by Huzan Tata

A group show in Kolkata explores form, material and value in their residual afterlife

What is the ‘immaterial’ of material? What happens if you try to “remove” the immaterial that’s usually concealed? Four artists, at a group show in Kolkata, have attempted to explore the Immateriality in Residue through sculpture, drawing, installation and assemblage. From their various creations, the artists uncover form and value, and residual afterlife.
